The Shady Thug Tour happens by Blu Phoenix Venue (3315 Princeton NE) on the evening of Saturday, June 4. This event features two very, very interesting rappers, KXNG Crooked and Big Sloan. In case you want to know, KXNG Crooked is that dude who released the recording Mr. Pigface Weapon Waist while working as a member of the hip-hop super group Slaughter. It’s hardcore stuff, laced with winsome references to street violence and dysfunctional domestic relationships. Of course that doesn’t mean the dude is incapable of reaching for higher ground; his latest single “Fearless” takes on a for realz thug named Donald Trump. Big Sloan, of Mo Thugs fame shares the bill. Sloan Bone (as he is also known) has been working tirelessly to coalesce Long Beach, Califas and Midwest rap particulars into a bass-heavy, cruising-the-highway looking for trouble type of rap that appeals to ennui-filled kids of all ages. His new, yet untitled single features Crooked and Eminem, but I don’t think the slim shady one will be at the Burque show. None the less, here’s a primo opportunity to check out the latest in ultra-naughty, mainstream rap. SFK, Suede School and Exclucive provide local support. Tickets for this all ages vision of street smarts and holy urban degradation range from $25-40. The $40 ticket includes a VIP meet and greet; the sound goes down beginning at 7pm.
